/sigh I always forget how Minion likes it packaged. I've pushed another update, thanks.

I've installed it manually (deleting and replacing the previous version's files in its addon folder) this time, so I don't have to wait for a fix.

Hi, thanks for bringing this to my attention. I forgot to wrap the addon in a folder, so Minion thought it was invalid. I've published a corrected version now!
Noted, thanks for the fix!

Hey, thanks for this addon; I love it.

There is one small problem with it, though. EVENT_PLAYER_ACTIVATED is fired every time the player encounters and exits a load screen; this happens very frequently--even intra-zone wayshrining will trigger this.

You are checking the "initial" parameter of this event, which works most of the time. But it is not reliable. Specifically, there will be cases where the game will get "stuck", so to speak, and always set "initial" to true for every load screen. This is a bug in the game.

When this happens, then every time the player rezones, wayshrines, etc., the next manual attempt to open the announcements will get closed down, and a player will need to access the Announcements twice in order to manually open it.

Again, this isn't a problem with your addon, but an intermittent problem with the game not setting the "initial" parameter reliably. But you can easily work around this by unregistering EVENT_PLAYER_ACTIVATED as soon as it is triggered.

Since there is no reason for the code to ever run a second time, unregistering the event will ensure that it will only run for the initial load. It's still worth checking the "initial" flag, though, to handle the case where the function is invoked by a user reloading their UI.

Anyway, it's a pretty simple 1-line fix. And again, thanks for this great addon!

Code:
function HideLoginAnnouncement:OnPlayerActivated(eventCode, initial)
    EVENT_MANAGER:UnregisterForEvent(self.name, EVENT_PLAYER_ACTIVATED)

    if initial then
        self.scene = SCENE_MANAGER:GetScene(self.announcementSceneName)
        self.scene:RegisterCallback('StateChange', self.OnSceneStateChange)
    end
end

You cant, but Dolby or cairenn can for you

I hope this becomes very popular and ZOS takes the hint. This functionality also exists in Vostorn's version of NTY.
